How It Played Out
One thing these guys learned from their attempt at a military coup is- do not trust a guy names Smedley to run anything!
Smedley was not only vehemently anti0fascism but was also a vocal FDR supporter. Apparently, they did not do their due diligence and realize their point man had actively stumped for FDR a few years prior!
Smedley Spills the Beans
It wasn’t long before Smedley spilled the beans to a congressional committee in 1934, although as you can imagine all those involved denied having any clue what he was talking about.
While none of them were charged, the House McCormack-Dickstein Committee did acknowledge that there were plans of a conspiracy that never landed up going to the next step.
